An Air Fryer is an alternative to deep frying in oil. This also comes in different models and from different manufacturers.

This fryer uses much less oil and is considered to be a much healthier why to fry things such as french fries, of course this is not the only food you can cook with it.

There have been people who think the food is dry and does not have much flavor so check out the reviews before you buy.

Before you purchase an air fryer, check you kitchen outlets to be sure the have enough wattage to handle the fryer. They need 800-2100 watts of power. I can’t tell you how to tell, but I am sure you will be able to find the answer on the internet.

The are manufactured by several companies and vary in price. Each manufacturer has different features to offer. Check out the features before you buy because you may not get what you need and you may get things you don,t need.

Color can be a factor in choosing your mixer but I am sure you can find the color with the features you want. I love mine when making cookies that have a heavier consistency.

Sandwich Maker- There is nothing better than a warm sandwich that you make yourself. An electric sandwich maker will allow you to do this at your convenience without a lot of fuss.

Like every other electric kitchen gadget, there are many choices in sandwich makers. One thing to consider, do you want to make a single sandwich or more than one? They do come in single or double.

The sandwich maker can also be used as a waffle maker or can be used as an indoor grill. This is a benefit because it will eliminate another gadget or two.

  1. I need all of them 🙂 I really love cooking and coming up with new ideas while I’m in the kitchen and of course the gadgets are always essential. These are super cool, especially the air fryer. I’ve never used one before and I’m very intrigued. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. I can’t wait until I get an instant pot! My family is always on the go & sometimes I don’t have time to make dinner – ugh. I’ve heard about how great they are & don’t take any time to put all the ingredients in there. Do you know about how long it takes for a meal to be cooked in the Instant Pot?

    The Air Fryer is also a must need for every household. I have one of those & I can’t see myself without it. I actually can’t eat fried food so the Air Fryer helps me with cooking squash & carrot chips for dips. 

  3. Great article ans has a lot of truth in it.

    We have all these gadgets which you mentioned, and we couldn’t live without it anymore.

    Also like the Air Fryer, our fries are so much healthier since we only 2 drips of oil, instead of using half a bottle, and they taste delicious.

    Many people should read this post and realize the things you mentioned, are things you can’t live without.

    Thanks for sharing this!

  4. I love kitchen gadgets so I really enjoyed your post. I have each of the appliances you talked about except the fryer. Growing up my parents used to make homemade french fries which I loved. That was a fun memory that your post evoked. 

    It’s amazing how reliant we can become on our modern conveniences. I’m not sure my world wouldn’t totally collapse without my coffee maker, instant pot, and mixer. I rely on them to make my life run smoothly. And my kids are obsessed with our sandwich maker. I also love my electric Wok, it makes cooking and cleanup a breeze. 

    Every appliance takes up space, though, so I’m learning to be selective in what I buy and don’t buy. Great post. I enjoyed reading it. 

  5. I really love kitchen gadgets.  It really sucks me in, you know?  I love going through those stores that have just collections of this kind of stuff, and I have really try not to buy everything.  I’m glad to see a site that will take a look at a lot of things like this, because as much as I am a sucker for kitchen gadgets, a lot of times they don’t deliver as advertised.  Others become life-changers.  What is your experience on this?  What percentage of kitchen gadgets really do what they say better than the norm?

  6. Carolyn,

    These are some very useful kitchen gadgets of which I have 3 of the 4 in my home. This is a strong article but I don’t get a sense of direction on where it is going besides providing basic advise. You may want to include where these items can found online for purchase and a link to those sites. I would also include a juicer or blender and speak on the benefits of juicing. Overall, great article! Thank you for the information.

    1. Thanks so much for the comments. Your advice is appreciated. I have a lot left to say so hopefully I will cover your interests.

  7. I bought the instant pot, just like the one in your article, for my wife back in 2016 on a black Friday, she was so so happy. Its a pretty kitchen gadget every woman can be proud  to have.

    She uses it for steaming vegetables, peeling hard boiled eggs, making different stews and most often when we are travelling, she can just put warm food in it and make sure the “keep warm” function is ON. You can eat the food after several hours but the food will be still warm.  Its a great kitchen gadget.
